Stan McQuay (b. July 12, 1973 in Yokosuka, Japan) is an IFBB professional bodybuilder.

Stan has been featured in many bodybuilding magazines and videos, including being featured on the cover of Muscle Polynesia, despite not being Polynesian.


Born in Yokosuka, Japan in 1977 to a Japanese mother and Irish father,[1] Stan McQuay moved to the United States with his family at an early age, living first in Illinois before settling in Van Nuys, California. Growing up in the San Fernando Valley, Stan spent most of his free time surfing and skateboarding. Stan became steadily employed and enrolled in community college. At a maximum height of 5’ 7” and weighing 135 lbs, Stan began weight-training in order to gain the muscle-mass necessary for college football.

Most recently, Stan moved a competitive middleweight to a light-heavyweight, and was able to win his pro-card as a light-heavyweight at the 2006 NPC Nationals. He has appeared on the cover of several publications.

Grand Jury Testimony: McQuay's Involvement in the Murder of Gavin Smith[edit]

Subpoenaed for testimony before a Los Angeles County grand jury, Stan McQuay was called to testify under oath regarding his involvement in the assault and murder of Fox Film executive Gavin Smith, having aided and abetted in the impromptu storage and concealment of Smith's stolen vehicle, for one week from the night of the murder, in his own garage, affording his gym buddy John Creech, a convicted drug dealer having just murdered Smith in the front seat of Smith's 420E Mercedes Benz, time sufficient to remove and discard Smith's body, and arrange for the bloodied vehicle's clandestine storage at a long-term storage facility in Simi Valley.[3]
